Our program prepares fellows to be excellent clinicians, endoscopists, and academic leaders through academic and research ventures.

We offer a three-year ACGME accredited Gastroenterology Fellowship that comprises endoscopic procedures, inpatient and outpatient care, and research projects. The first year is divided between endoscopic procedures, inpatient and outpatient care, and research projects. The second and third years continue clinical and endoscopic experiences with more time devoted to research activities. Upon completion of the fellowship program, fellows will be eligible for board certification in Pediatric Gastroenterology through the American Board of Pediatrics.

Our facility provides comprehensive care to a multi-state area including Missouri and Kansas. Our faculty consists of experienced gastroenterologists and transplant hepatologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, nutritionists, psychologists and social workers. We are committed to high-quality patient care enhanced by research and academic endeavors.

Fellowship highlights:


  • Fellows rapidly acquire skills in endoscopic procedures beginning in their first year of the program through endoscopic simulation and hands-on procedures.

  • Fellows will learn from a vast range of disease entities including chronic liver disease and transplant, inflammatory bowel disease, short bowel syndrome, motility disorders, allergic intestinal disease and functional gastrointestinal disorders.

  • Guidance will be provided for research design, IRB submission, data analysis and scientific writing.
